One of our highlights from this past fall was the opportunity we had to host the West Lakes Association of American Geographers conference in the new Davies Center, 17-19October.  Geographers from across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and beyond attended.  Numerous sessions, activities and events made it memorable.  Students from Ingolf Vogeler and Garry Running's capstone course served as the critical core of our student volunteers, paper and poster sessions were well attended and received, we took full advantage of Eau Claire amenities for our field trips and social times, and we collaborated with the Chippewa Valley Book Festival to host two authors whos speak to geographic topics and themes.
